Frame construction

RHYTHM FUN Folding Treadmill

The RHYTHM FUN folding treadmill features a steel frame coated with a corrosion-resistant paint finish. However, the machine also integrates several plastic parts. For example, the motor cover, the side rail covers, and most consoles are durable thermoplastic materials.

The treadmill is not super large, and it’s also foldable. It has a fold-flat design; the two upright bars with the console and the side grips fold down over the deck. When folded flat, the machine is only approx. 9″ (22.8 cm) from the floor, so it can store under a bed if there is that much clearance. It can also store vertically against a wall.

In its fully set up position, the machine is approx. 64″ (163 cm) long, and 33″ (84 cm) wide, while its highest point, with the fitness console in its upright position, is approx. 46.5″ (118 cm). Thus, the machine doesn’t take up too much space.

Furthermore, it is advisable to allow at least two feet of clearance on each side of its running platform and at least three feet at the rear for safe usage.

The treadmill is relatively heavy as well. Its net weight is 132 lbs (60 kg). Therefore, two people should transport the packaged machine. However, once assembled and ready to use, one person can relocate the machine as its front base features a set of transport wheels.

Deck

One of the first aspects I must note here is that the RHYTHM FUN folding treadmill does not have an incline system. Its running platform is horizontal, and its angle is not adjustable.

Nevertheless, it offers a running/walking area of 50″L x 20″W (127 x 51 cm), which is fair for a home-use machine. It also has a maximum user weight capacity of 265 lbs (120 kg).

The machine’s deck integrates several cushioning elements. Some of them are visible on each side. These reduce a considerable amount of the impact generated by each foot strike. Therefore, a run on this treadmill will result in less workout-related joint pain than a run on concrete or asphalt.

The integrated thread belt features a multi-layer construction combining seven layers of different materials. Its top layer is rubber and textured for an improved grip. There is also an inner thicker layer of PVC foam which contributes to the overall shock absorption of the deck.

The diameter of the internal rollers is not specified. However, as is the case for most treadmills, the front roller is slightly thicker than the rear roller. They are both crowned to provide superior traction and reduce the wear and tear of the belt. They also integrate industrial-grade ball bearings for a smooth motion.

Drive motor

This RHYTHM FUN folding treadmill comes equipped with a 4.0 HP motor. Although it’s not a 4.0 CHP (continuous horsepower) motor, it’s still a pretty powerful motor for a home-use machine.

It integrates a small flywheel for improved stability and reduced vibration. It offers reasonably decent performance without overheating, even if you use the machine at top speeds for prolonged workouts.

The machine comes with a power cord and requires a 110V power source. The cord features a standard U.S. plug, and it connects to the front part of the deck. There is also an On/Off switch near the cable port.

The motor offers a speed range between 1 – 15 kmh (0.6 MPH and 9.3 MPH). It’s important to note that the console shows the speed and distance in km/h and kilometers without offering the possibility to change them to imperial metrics.

The speed adjustment increments are 0.1 kmh. Thus, the speed adjusts gradually, offering the opportunity to change your pace easily.

The console offers controls for gradual speed adjustment and quick speed adjustment, and there also are incremental speed adjustment controls built in the right handgrip of the machine. The quick speed adjustment controls are two kmh, four kmh, six kmh, eight kmh, ten kmh, and 12 kmh. That’s roughly 1.2 MPH, 2.5 MPH, 3.7 MPH, 5 MPH, 6.2 MPH, and 7.4 MPH.

The motor is not too noisy. As a general idea, when running at full speed, you will still hear your TV on a moderate volume level. However, depending on your weight, running gear, running techniques, and other factors, your cadence may generate more or less noise.

Console

The RHYTHM FUN folding treadmill comes equipped with a LED display console. It features five windows that indicate distance, steps, speed, time, calories burned, and pulse. Unfortunately, the speed and distance are in metric units, and there is no option for setting them to English units.

The pulse reading function is grip contact only. Accordingly, the console only reads your pulse if you hold on to the sensors integrated into the side grips.

The console has Bluetooth connectivity. In addition, it is compatible with the YPOO app available in Google Play and Apple App Store. A QR scan-able code sticker comes with the treadmill to easily install this app.

The app offers the possibility to track your progress and workout history online, offers extra readings, private coaching, fun games for runners, and more. The Bluetooth connectivity also works for the built-in speakers.

You can sync your tablet or phone with the machine’s console and play your music through these speakers for better sound quality. There also are +/- and mute volume controls on the console dashboard.

If you don’t want to use the machine’s fitness app, the console has a set of workout programs. Each program will auto-adjust the speed depending on its layout. For example, some programs have an interval layout, while others will help you improve stamina or focus on helping you lose weight.

Assembly and Maintenance

The RHYTHM FUN treadmill comes pre-assembled. You only have to unbox it, unfold it, and plug it in. The manual provides clear instructions for it, and tools for adjusting the belt come with the machine.

It would be best to clean the belt to prevent dirt or textile fibers from being caught in the motor or the rollers for maintenance. In addition, the belt requires periodic lubrication, and a bottle of lubricant comes with the treadmill.

Furthermore, it is advisable to wipe off the sweat that may fall onto the frame and console at the end of the workout. You should also periodically check if all the parts still hold correctly and retighten as needed.

  1. This is an in-depth description and review of the product. I love the sleek design and the shock-absorbing features. However, I typically like to run on inclines when I use the treadmill, so I agree that is one of the cons mentioned in the review. Thanks for the detailed overview of this product. Very informational. I learned a lot about this product!

  2. Thanks for the comprehensive review of this product. I would definitely like to buy one for my 3 teen sons and myself. Although my husband probably needs to lose some weight before getting on it due to the 250lb weight limit.

  4. Hey, could you expand a bit on why you said the workout app isn’t the best? I’m not super into workout apps anyway but occasionally will use them for things like treadmills; that’s why I was curious. Besides that and the fact that it doesn’t have an incline mode, it looks great for my exercise type. It’s also really nice that it comes pre-assembled; all you need to do is unfold it.

    • Hi Caden, thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. The app is not reliable. Sometimes it won’t load, or it freezes during use. And I’ve noticed that it doesn’t load updates to my phone. I could go on, but you get the picture.

      Would you please let me know if I may further assist you with exercise equipment? I’m always happy to help.

      Kind regards, Robert
